Electronic cigarettes are not advertised or have been tested as cessastion products but that is method I have chosen to quit because other methods have not worked for me.
The are many alternative methods to stopping smoking, like accupuncture but as the electronic cigarete represents a cigarette I believe it to be a good method.
My smoking history. I started smoking nearly 20 years ago and from the very first week I was smoking 10 cigarettes day. Within a few years I was up to smoking 20+ cigaretes a day. Not very healthy as you can imagine.
My first attempt was will power.
Result :- I don't have any will power.
My verdict :- 0/10
Attempt number two was with nicotine lozengers.
Result :- I did not smoke for three days. The problem was the awful taste, the burning in my mouth and I developed mouth ulscers.
My verdict :- 2/10
Attempt number three was with nicotine inhaler.
Result :- Oh my. Did not even vaguely work for me.
My verdict :- 1/10
Attempt number four was nicotine gum.
Result :- One week. I craved holding a cigarette and folded by weekend. The gum did work but didn't take my mind of smoking and I did get fed up with chewing it.
My verdict :- 7/10
Attempt number five was zyban.
Result :- Quite simply did not work. Depressed, sick and lost virility.
Verdict :- 0/10
On with my current success, not attempt.
Electronic Cigarette Starter Kit
High Nicotine Cartridges, Medium Nicotine Cartridges, Low Nicotine Cartridges.
This was an easy day if I am perfectly honest because it still involved smoking a tobacco cigarette in addtion to the electronic cigarette.
This was my smoking calendar
Week 1 - 40 tobacco cigarettes and 7 High Nicotine Cartridges
Week 2 - 20 tobacco cigarettes and 9 High Nicotine Cartridges
Week 3 - 10 tobacco cigarettes and 10 High Nicotine Cartridges
Week 4 - 10 High Nicotine Cartridges
Week 5 - 10 High Nicotine Cartridges
Week 6 - 10 Medium Nicotine Cartridges
Week 7 - 7 Medium Nicotine Cartridges
Week 8 - 7 Medium Nicotine Cartridges
Week 9 - 7 Low Nicotine Cartridges
Week 10 – 7 Low Nicotine Cartridges
I'm still using nicotine cartridges but I consider that I have quit smoking. My verdict is 9/10. I would give it full marks but that make it perfect and nothing is perfect It has cost me money to quit, but has also saved me money.
Good luck to everyone who is trying to quit smoking.
